The Solar Rain Tree Oasis is being developed as a public gathering place pavilion for the drought stricken state of California. The ideal location for these large pre-fabricated steel structures is in a public park, but they can also be placed into any public accessible location. All of the structures are designed to support ten large solar cell arrays that collect energy from the sun and convert it into electricity, which is sent into the local power grid. In addition, each of the structures is formed into a circular shape that is capable of collecting rainwater and directing it into storage containers that are buried under the structures.

The ‘Raw Australian Shed’ by Kennedy Associates Architects has been shortlisted in the 2014 World Architecture Festival Awards for the AGL Lakeside Pavilion at the Australian Botanic Garden in Sydney. Drawing together two highly symbolic concepts: the semi permanent theatrical marquee and the more permanent vernacular shed, it’s a generous building that inspires and lifts you.

This functional art structure was designed for a small public park as a gathering place for the visitors. The prefabricated pavilion is made of painted sustainably grown wood. The structure is nineteen feet wide, and twenty feet tall. It’s shape was generated from a basic octagon form that was folded out around the perimeter, and at the top. The basic octagon form consists of a support frame onto which the slated wood panels are hinged out and secured into position with steel bolts.

The Welcome Pavilion provides space for ticketing, information and membership services at the inaugural Slow Food Nation event. The reclaimed shipping container, topped with plants and a windmill, creates an iconic image while providing the introductory public interface for the festival. Part billboard, part box-office, and part way-finding beacon, the pavilion announces the Slow Food movement’s dedication to sustainability and social responsibility.

“DRIFT proposes a triangular arrangement of eight foot diameter balloons that create a dynamic canopy over bourbon tastings, educational spaces for children and other groups. Jurors praised the project for its unexpected playfulness and relationship to historic river imagery. The design was interpreted by the panel of jurors as a type of inverted raft with romantic allusions to the journeys of Huckleberry Finn as well as the flatboats that once populated Louisville’s wharf in great numbers. — Kentucky Museum of Art & Craft blog”

In the old part of Amstelveen, stemming from the thirties, an office building and a pavilion together form the Bella Donna. The original buildings were designed in the sixties by the architect Webbers. They are situated on an island, surrounded by greenery and water and reachable via a bridge. The client was looking for a new office for his organization, when he came across the Bella Donna. Charmed by the green park-like setting he decided to settle in the pavilion, while the main building was re-designed to rent to others. This major renovation and expansion was the starting point to create a high-quality office near the Stadshart Amstelveen. The Bella Donna now has an exclusive look at a clearing in a woody area.

The site for this project is an existing 1960’s modern house with a 1980’s complementary addition. The Pool existed at the outset as well.
We were asked to design a new pool enclosure fence and Car Port that would be more consistent with the architecture of the house than the English trellis and dovecotes that existed when we began. All of this pre-dated the current owner.

The project anticipates the rearrangement of an already existent construction annexed to a small house, in a refuge pavilion with 50 m².
The implanting of the new building follows the limits of this existent construction in the west side, recycling small stone. The opposite side is rebuilt, realigned and, reusing the granite header from the best walls, is created an uncovered yard that serves as entrance and, at the same time, decompresses the proximity with the neighbouring house. This reconstructed element melts itself with the new construction interlinking the granite wall with horizontal slate plates of 3 cm in thickness placed in small stone cubes making a continuous grate that draws the building.
